Ortho-k

Orthokeratology

Orthokeratology (OrthoK) is an overnight vision correction therapy that uses RGP (rigid) contact lenses to adjust the shape of your cornea to correct your prescription.

The lenses are only worn at night and during the day you will have clear vision without glasses or contact lenses.

The effect is temporary and your cornea will return to it’s normal shape if you stop wearing the lenses.  These lenses are suitable only if you are short-sighted and up to a prescription of -5.00 and -1.25 of astigmatism.

If you are interested and would like to know more you can find more information here at EyeDream Lenses or call the practice on 01435 868181 to find out if your prescription is suitable.
